that this u.s. launches these drone attacks against al qaeda targets from that particular base. i want to bring in two folks here at the pentagon chris lawrence also michael holmes from cnn international. chris, it's not a total surprise that this was there in saudi arabia, but certainly it was not something that they officially wanted to reveal. why are they doing it now? >> that's the big question, suzanne, why did this come out? we reported two years ago from our sources u.s. officials were telling us the cia was building an airstrip in the a arabian peninsula. it was hinted it would possibly be in saudi arabia. but we never had any sort of agreement to withhold that. we simply reported it was being built in the arabian peninsula. others entered an agreement with the white house to hold back the exact location. why that is coming out now? that's what we are trying to figure out. it's certainly extremely provocative. you couldn't pick probably a more provocative place in the islamic world to have u.s. strikes originating from saudi arabia. it is for that reason u.s. troops on saudi s

a threat to u.s. national security and to international peace and security. and he continued the u.s. remains vigilant in the face of north korean provocations and steadfast in our defense commitments to allies in the region. obviously ther obvious obviously, there is grave concern. the north koreans are saying they have a different type of weapon, more sophisticated, more powerful. what is happening right now is that the u.s. and international organizations are monitoring what they -- what they can from this test. they are sending the united states, sending planes aloft and what they do, they have sensors on them, and they try to sniff the air in a way and figure out exactly what kind of explosion that was. because there are a couple of different types of explosions, and depending on that, we could find out how much they can do of testing in the future and perhaps create a bomb. soledad. >> jill dougherty, thank you, jill. ahead, we'll talk to gordon chang, author of "nuclear showdown." we'll discuss that, straight ahead and iran announcing its converting about 20% of enriched urani

to use a rifle. he's been awarded for his marksmanship. >> reporter: that's right. the u.s. navy quickly assembling what records it has on this man. and telling us he was a navy reservist. just until a few days ago, he separated from the naval service. we don't know when the last time is he showed up. but he has shooting expertise. let's go through it. according to navy records, he has been awarded the rifle marksman ribbon and the pistol expert medal. these are awarded for achieving a certain level of shooting accuracy at various distances. let's be clear. the plan is not a navy commander, he's not a navy s.e.a.l. he held a number of jobs as a reservist in navy security operations. in fact, he went to iraq, we are told, and had a job providing military security on iraqi oil platforms, to have that job, it is most likely we are told he did receive some advanced weapons training. you will remember back in those days, those oil platforms, a lot of concern about small boat attacks, sniper attacks, that sort of thing. so he clearly has a certain level, a worrisome level of weapons expertise.

through. it went through this week. the merger between u.s. airways and the bankrupt american airlines, the newly formed carrier will be the world's largest, but it has some customers worried about possible fare increases. ali velshi explains what it means for fliers. >> if regulators allow it, u.s. airways is going to take over a bankrupt american airlines creating the world's biggest airline in the process. the newly merged company will keep the american airlines name. and while the deal is probably good for investors, passengers worry that airfares will shoot up as competition disappears. now, i talked to the ceos of both companies when they announced the merger. and they said passengers will not see fare hikes. >> we're going to take two airlines highly complementary, to the same number of places, which is actually good for the consumers of both airlines. there won't be a reduction in supply, so therefore no reason to believe there would be an increase in pricing. >> so why would we take the ceo's word for it? take a look at this. prices for an average domestic economy airfare have

spending cuts, cuts he fears will wreck the u.s. economic recovery. basically he wants lawmakers to kick the can down the road one more time. let's go to our white house correspondent dan lothian. dan is joining us. dan, the president made a little bit of a surprise appearance over in the white house briefing room. >> reporter: that's right. very surprising because the president in the past has criticized these short-term deals saying that this is not what the american people sent their elected officials to washington to do. you have this march 1st deadline quickly approaching. while congress is trying to work on a bigger budget, 1 pine point $2 trillion package, the president says they need more time in order to continue tipping away at the problem. the big concern is that everyone believes that the economy is moving in the right direction. the president is pointing to auto sales, the housing, to manufacturing. and so there's this worry that if this see quester happens, if these deep cuts happen then it could be a major set back for the u.s. economy. the president is saying the threat a
in the united states on this? >> there is no official reaction from the u.s. government. of course, the u.s. was expecting this ted stevens morning. was speaking to an official that said the test could come any time. obviously they have been bracing for it. right now a lot of frantic telephone calls going on. not only within the u.s. government but also in south korea. the new secretary of state, john kerry, spoke to the south korean foreign minister just moments ago about the latest nuclear test and now everybody is trying to get their diplomatic ducks in a row. everybody getting on the same page. there will be a security council meeting tomorrow morning, 11:00 eastern time. to discuss the next response and that is what the question is. what will the traffic there? will the chinese sign on to the tough resolution that the united states is looking for? will they set on to tough sanctions. it is unclear at this point what china will agree to and that is the best the u.s. can hope for in terms of getting anything out of the u.n. security council. then i also understand the united states is al
supplies and more of what the u.s. calls nonlethal assistance. secretary of state john kerry announced the package today. he said, a lot about it. there's a lot of nuance in all of this. we have more details coming up in a live report. >>> well, the clock is ticking towards those automatic across-the-board spending cuts, due to kick in tomorrow. well, last night president obama told business leaders the cuts will be bad for them and will cause the economy to tumble downward. republicans have accused the president of resorting to scare tactics and politics instead of focusing on the debt and the deficit. >>> all right, we are talking, of course, about $85 billion in cuts over the next seven months. no one -- known in washington jargon as sequestration. let's bring in ali velshi. we've been hearing these dire scenarios from the obama administration. before we get to the questions, have a listen. >> the sequester will weaken america's economic recovery. it will weaken our military readiness. and it will weaken the basic services the american people depend on every single day. >> the reali
up yet. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." cutting our pay. that's how one u.s. officer says u.s. troops view the recommendation for a smaller pay increase in 2014. no one goes into the military to get rich but most servicemen and women need every dollar in their paycheck. so worried that next paycheck may be smaller is not going over well among the troops. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr has the details. she's working the story. barbara, what's going on? >> wolf, in this town, there's nothing that causes more anxiety in budget politics than the concept of cutting the pay for the troops. but that is exactly what is on the table if congress and the president cannot reach an agreement on a spending plan. the troops usually are happy to see defense secretary leon panetta, smiles and handshakes all around. but days before he leaves office, panetta has bad news. he's proposing less money in their paycheck next year. panetta, a savvy washington operative in budget politics, is leaving it to congress to figure out how not to cut pay and keep thousands of defen
say they do not have the capability to make a bomb. >> well, zoraida, it will be days before the u.s. has a very good handle on the size of the explosion, the size of the payload, but at first glance what u.s. officials are very concerned about are north korea's claims that it testified a miniaturized nuclear weapon. why is that so concerning? that means they're closer to making a missile that they could launch toward the united states. these types of dplier tesnuclea moves them closer to mastering the idea. it was expected, officials tell me, that north korea warned the u.s. and china yesterday that a test was eminent. after the test president obama issued a statement. what he said was north korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs constitute a threat to u.s. national security and to international peace and security. we will strengthen close coordination with allies and partners and work with our six-party partners,united nations security council and other u.n. member states to pursue this. they will be meeting this morning in an emergency session. my source is telling
was born. >> tropical storm sandy, heading straight for islands in the caribbean. >> the u.s. at least for now is not in the cone. >> the initial forecast, she might go out to sea, but that changed quickly. >> we were eight days ahead on this storm. we watched this thing on the computers turn left and turn right a couple of times before the one model said this is going to america. >> this could be a big storm as it makes that turn and slams directly into where new york and new jersey come together. >> seven days before the storm hit, computer predictions, called models, put landfall in new jersey. there was time to get ready, board up, evacuate. >> this morning i formally declared a state of emergency in anticipation of hurricane sandy. >> when the storm hit atlantic city on the 29th, it was just five miles, that's it, just five miles, from where the earliest forecast said it would cross the coastline. >> it's unprecedented. that's the best word i could use. there's no way any other storm in recent memory has been forecast that good, for that long. >> this pinpoint accuracy came from p
and fireworks came together to welcome in the year of the snake. festivities took place in the u.s. and around the world. >>> it's called the biggest night in music industry. we're talking about tonight and talking about the grammys in los angeles. nichelle turner says she's seeing tighter security because of that manhunt. >>> while the mayor of los angeles is making sure the grammys are safe and secure, he's also vowing to find a dangerous ex-cop. that's christopher dorner. a $1 million reward now on the table. let's go straight out to casey wian in los angeles. a record reward now being offered here, right? >> reporter: that's right. and lapd chief charlie beck said, martin, it was remarkably easy to raise the money for that million-dollar reward. the mayor of los angeles saying the money came from corporations, charitable organizations, law enforcement groups, the city, lots of people banding together, showing just how important this effort is to the city of los angeles. here's what the police chief and the mayor had to say at that news conference. >> this is an act, and make no mistake abo
change. organizers claim it is the biggest rally of its kind ever in the u.s. we have a reporter who braved the cold to stand in the crowd. going to take you there in a moment. >>> pope benedict xvi led tens of thousands in a prayer for strength. this morning, he gave his second-to-last prayer as pontiff and thanked his followers for their support. last week, the 85-year-old pope announced he is resigning because of advanced age. >>> in los angeles, dozens of protesters gather outside the lapd headquarters. they carried signs supporting renegade ex-cop and cop killer, christopher dorner them don't support dorner's deadly rampage but say the accusations of corruption, racism, even brutality against the lapd need to be addressed so this doesn't happen again. >> i think there are a lot of honest policemen out there trying to help the people. but it just is atrocious what mr. dorner did and we don't want it to happen again. >> now, our nick valencia is here with me today. nick, you were out in los angeles. it seems a little bit odd that people would actually support a cop killer. what is
will not furlough foreigners, though, who work on u.s. bases around the world. only american employees, why is that? >> reporter: well, that is right, wolf, places like japan, where the u.s. military has a significant presence, what they face is in some cases, it is the local government that pays the workers. so the furlough does no good. or they would have to open up the government to government agreement that governs these facilities. and that would take some time. so they just are not going to furlough the u.s. workers overseas. >> barbara star, how will the budget cuts be implemented if no deal is struck to head them off over the week. cnn's tom foreman has more. >> reporter: you know it is puzzling, wolf, because nobody in washington seems to know how it will really work. we're getting an idea, not just because there will be 10% cuts across the agencies that the impact will be felt by people. but more importantly, the way the cuts will probably be administered, probably, because we don't know how any given department will be able to handle it. let's talk about a department that doesn't exist,
through the laundry. criminal charges are a whole other kettle of fish. the u.s. attorney in los angeles investigated lance armstrong for almost two years and suddenly weirdly dropped everything without explaining anything a year ago, and reporters yesterday had a shot at asking whether the whole oprah interview and the admission i'm a druggy changed anything, when it comes to how the feds look at their set of facts. here's what he said. take a look. >> we made a decision on that case i believe it's a little over a year ago. obviously we have been well aware of the statements that have been made by mr. armstrong and other media reports. that's not changed my view at this time. we will continue to look at the situation. but it hasn't changed our view as i stand here today. >> it hasn't changed our view as i stand here today. jeffrey toobin, that's one u.s. attorney based in southern california, do all of the u.s. attorney's all over the country work in concert? or might one u.s. attorney say on another coast be working on a whole different investigation that he might not know about? >> th
this nuclear test. we're getting this information from the u.s. geological survey which reported a seismic disturbance in north korea. the seismic event was centered near the side of pyeoongyangpyoo previous tests. officials have confirmed seismic activity in north korea. south korea says it detected what it called an artificial earthquake north of its border. the tremor, though, was different from what you might consider to be a normal earthquake. no further information at this stage is known. there's no official confirmation coming from anyone, least of all from pyongyang. north korea as we've been telling you, widely expecting to carry out this nuclear test any day now. pyongyang is expecting to stage a high intensity -- we have anna koran standing by in seoul, south korea, we also have alex in tokyo. let's go to anna koran, who is in seoul for us right now. anna, you're on military maneuvers just a few days ago, with the south koreans and u.s. military there. there is a great deal of preparation in south korea for this event. essentially, given what's happened, what can the south korea
unknown and officials don't know if it was an accident or murder. >>> of lance armstrong and the u.s. postal service cycling team received tens of millions of dollars in federal funds. now the u.s. government wants it back. the justice department says it will join the lawsuit filed by former teammate floyd landis. that suit alleges armstrong and managers defrauded the government by using performance enhancing substances in violation of sponsorship rules. >>> and now, a new winter storm in the northeast. once again up to 10 inches of snow possible for parts of new england this weekend. boston still has remnants of that big blizzard that hit just two weeks ago, if you recall. and even after the streets were cleared, the city was left with a whole lot of potholes to fill. karen mcginnis back in the weather center, here we go again. >> the third weekend in a row but not like what we saw early part of february, fred, when they got blasted with about 24 inches of snow. this one going to pack a little bit of a punch. the computer models were all over the place. yes, snow on the way not just
of this kind of imminent threat, it requires me being off u.s. soil. >> right. there's a big distinction here, that's important to talk about. this memo only applies in situations where an american citizen is in a combat area. not even -- they can't do it in the streets of london. the memo talks about in a place that is essentially a war zone. >> but we don't have a declared war against these places. >> we do have authorization of use of military force against al qaeda. that's -- >> the zones. >> those are the areas. you know, yemen, afghanistan, formerly iraq, that's where we use those powers. but you talk about your phone calls, you have a -- they need a warrant to listen to your phone calls in the united states. but if you call yemen, they don't need a warrant. >> they can listen. what about mali, is that considered to be a place where, if you're planning an attack against me and you're safe, from i don't know, poughkeepsie, they can take you out there? >> the memo doesn't deal with na directly but you can bet the answer is yes. mali -- anywhere where we think al qaeda mig
